Here's How We're Changing

As a team, we’ve worked hard to think what our next move is and how SXSW Eco can transform to give the issues our community feels so passionately about a larger platform. With that in mind, we’re excited to share that SXSW Eco will be transitioning from a standalone event and integrating into the broader SXSW in March, a time when the world has its eyes on Austin. In lieu of an independent SXSW Eco event in October, SXSW 2018 will host an expanded program containing the distinctive formats and special events unique to SXSW Eco.

This means we’ll be developing a program for SXSW 2018 dedicated to climate, resiliency and innovation. We’ll also be merging our notable programs including the Startup Showcase and Place by Design into the broader SXSW landscape, which poses exciting opportunities for new collaborations, inspiration and partnerships. We look forward to working with the SXSW Eco community to elevate these important topics each March.

In the meantime, explore the wide variety of convergence programming curated by the SXSW Eco team for SXSW 2017 registrants. Our full Social Good Hub program highlighting the power of design, entrepreneurship and communications to drive social change, and the SXSW Eco Startup Speed Pitches are now live.
